We stayed for two nights in August this year as part of a tour round Scotland and this was easily the nicest place we stayed while there, and one of the best we've been to in years. Sergio was warm and welcoming, and looked after us well including allowing up to put our motorbike safely in his own garden. The Victorian period house is gorgeous, and full of tasteful charm and character. Our room was a brilliant size with a big en suite bathroom, full of light and quirky features. And the bed was so comfortable - all in all a welcome change from the impersonal Travelodges we had stayed at while in other cities! The cooked breakfasts were lovely (and huge!), with a vast selection of cereals, fresh fruits etc as well and he really couldn't do enough to make us feel at home while we were there. He encouraged us to treat the house as our own, making us feel free to use the front lounge to relax in and even bring food back to eat in there if we wished, making it a very relaxed, happy place to stay. Location wise, it was a short walk to the centre of Inverness and the bus station, pubs, restaurants, Castle etc. We would definitely stay here agin if we came to Inverness. Nice to have a host who genuinely wants to make sure you enjoy your stay - top marks!

We cannot recommend this Guest House enough. A beautiful Victorian building in a leafy superb of Inverness. Close to the station, buses, shops and restaurants. It has a lovely charm to it, full of interesting and quirky antiques. Sergio gives guests a genuine, warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was varied, fresh and plentiful.
My husband and I travel a lot and this is definitely one of our top choices and one we will revisit.

Room Tip: We had the lovely room with the painted floorboards.

We stayed at Averon for 3 nights during our 3 week round-trip of Scotland. Right from the start we were made to feel most welcome. Sergio offers great hospitality very much with a "mi casa es su casa" approach to things. Example: When we arrived we opted for the front room as it's slightly bigger than the garden one. Now, once we had unpacked and, well, already used the bathroom, I discovered that the bed actually had a board which didn't allow me (6'4) to stretch that big cabar of mine. Somewhat embarrassed we asked Sergio if we could still swap rooms. His reply: "Here in the Highlands we don't get stressed over these things", and that was that. We moved to the garden room, and he did what was necessary in the other.

At breakfast we were spoilt for choice (incl. plenty of fresh fruit) and offered more to eat than we could possibly have mastered (though I sure tried my best ;). Go for the porridge, if you haven't done so before. It keeps you going for most of the day! Notwithstanding, Sergio asked us if we wanted to help ourselves to a doggybag for our day trip.

Averon is very conveniently located, what with at least 3 places to eat around the corner (yet in a quiet neighbourhood) It's also only a short walk/drive to the centre. Sergio is very happy to give you directions and offer recommendations.

With Sergio and I sharing a keen interest in photography, we enjoyed many a pleasant conversation during our stay, to which one night we were joined by a friend of his. Soon we weren't talking about photography, and with a bottle of uisge beatha passing around an early evening chat on the stairs turned into a somewhat "later evening" chat...

I guess what I'm saying is that we felt more welcome as friends rather than guests. Sergio maintains a perfect balance between engaging with you as the host and giving you your privacy as a guest (I mention this because some prefer sticking to themselves). At Averon you'll find exactly what you want and need - which is the essence of "mi casa es su casa". Now, that's what I call great hospitality!

Conclusion: If in Inverness, it's Averon or nothing!

@ Sergio: I'm still in the process of, well, "processing" all those pics (~1,500); will send a link featuring an "essential selection" to you and John asap.

Room Tip: The front room is more spacious and has a bigger bathroom, but note that the bed has a board which could be an issue if you're a very tall chap like me (6'4). The garden room is smaller, but has a "non-restricting" bed and faces the garden - take your pick!

This B&B was a little gem.

Sergio was a lovely pleasant man, who would happily go the extra mile to make sure his guests are catered for.

As for the breakfast, its definately the best we have ever had. Fresh strawberries, melon and grapes to start with, yogurt and cereals to follow, and a huge cooked breakfast. Then crossiants, hot cross buns, pancakes. Too much to eat!

We will be back - thanks Sergio for a truly wonderful stay.

Unusual guest house full of interesting collectibles and interesting decor. Super large room with comfy bed and everything you need. First class breakfast. Wonderful host, Sergio, who is a real delight of a man for whom nothing is too much trouble. Also very convenient for town centre, the castle and the river. Only stayed one night but wished we'd been there longer. A really enjoyable experience and pleasure meeting and talking with Sergio
